Does stomach ulcer or acid reflux makes you hungry every couple of hours?

Sure, but maybe... ...your symptoms arise outside the stomach, like pancreas, biliary tree, etc. Stomach issues can be categorized as: problems with inflammation (e.g. ulcers), with infection (e.g. H.pylori or parasites), with motility (examples: gastroparesis, gastric outlet obstruction), with secretion (hyper or hypo-acidity), infiltrative (lymphoma, cancer), blood flow (gastropathies), functional dyspepsias, etc.

How do acid reflux and a stomach ulcer differ?

Related sometimes. A stomach ulcer is damage to the lining of the stomach ( hole) which can bleed, transform to something chronic, or just cause pain and suffering. Pain is a trigger to reflux, but so is a bad diet with excessive exposure to caffeine, alcohol, fizzy drinks, or fats which cause excessive acid production and leakage of acid into the esophagus. Both are treatable. Seek a doctor to help you. Read more...

Can untreated and severe acid reflux lead to death from a bleeding stomach ulcer??

Yes, unfortunately. Although there are many causes for gastric (stomach) ulcers, severe acid production and reflux is one of them. (Also, severe acid reflux can cause a bleeding esophagus, or food tube, which can be fatal). Any internal bleeding can cause death, because often the bleeding is masked. If you have acid reflux, talk to a doctor about treatment options (meds, surgery) & get checked right away. Good luck! Read more...

Do I have an ulcer I have graves disease, no gullbladder, acid reflux too. My stomach has been burning and sometimes when I try to eat, I can only take a couple bites and thats it

Hi. . Hi. Here are possible ulcer symptoms. Ulcers in the stomach can feel worse about three hours after a meal and duodenal ulcers (a little further down than the stomach) can feel better about three hours after a meal. One might experience a drop in appetite with weight loss. There can be a sense of bloating as well as nausea. If the ulcer bleeds it could lead to vomiting up blood. Sometimes vomit can look like dark coffee grounds. Melena can also be caused by bleeding. This is black, tarry, malodorous stool. The only way to find out for sure what the cause of your stomach pain is, is to have it medically assessed. Take care. Read more...

Probably not related. Pain from reflux or an ulcer is most typically felt in the upper abdomen near the rib cage or just behind the breastbone. Pain in the lower abdomen below navel would be a very unusual place to feel it. Hard to say what might be the cause however as details are few. Best to mention this to your doctor. Read more...
